Welcome to the Badgers
Welcome to the Badgers
We are a key stage one/key stage 2 class of 8 pupils who enjoy learning in our fun lessons.We will regularly update our class page so you can keep up to date with all of our themes and activities. We enjoy sensory activities particularly during our Literacy lessons.
Home School Diaries
We ask parents and carers to return the home school diary each day, as this will enable the class teacher to provide comments and information about your child's day in school. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with the class teacher.
Individual Education Plans (IEPs)
This plan sets out educational targets that your child is working on for the term. There is a section in the plan which provides parents and carers with activities or tasks you can do at home to support your child's learning. Plans are updated each term and sent home.
All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books, sensory books and big books to support the learning styles and levels for each child. Every Friday, your child will receive a new reading book. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories.
Class funds are £2 each week and money is used for snack items and cooking sessions in school.
